Middle School Science Teacher - Full Time. Begins September 1, 2020
The Middle School Science Teacher works as an effective member of the Westfield Friends School Faculty to develop a mission-based, innovative science curriculum. Westfield’s approach to teaching science will integrate physical and biological sciences as well as engineering concepts at each grade level and will involve extensive hands-on experience in both the lab and the ecosystems of our 8 acre campus, surrounding Burlington County, and Delaware River watershed.
The Middle School Science Teacher uses a variety of classroom techniques for learning and implements inquiry-based, interdisciplinary, hands-on, project-based work, field trips, outdoor experiences, educational technologies, and collaborative work with other teachers. Major responsibilities include developing creative and innovative curriculum, teaching four major classes, cooperating with other teachers in developing project-based learning initiatives, and participating in/directing Middle School activities. These activities include advising, supervision of study halls, lunch and recess, chaperoning field trips, participating in admissions-related events, writing reports, and other related activities that contribute to the Middle School community. All teachers are members of at least one school committee and engage in at least one other activity/job that benefits the school community, as determined by the Head of School, such as leading a team, organizing all-school events, providing an after-school club, or overseeing activities.
